I shit you not, I made it onto Tatler magazine’s list of best dressed men of the week at London Collections: Men AW14.
‘But what does it take to make it onto the list?’ I hear you ask. Everything I wore was 100% affordable. You don’t need a Burberry suit to look good, all it takes is a bit of accessorising and a playful attitude to achieve an outfit worthy of photographing. This season both of my suits were from Topman, thats right, Topman, not a bespoke tailors or Saville row, my ties were my designer accessories this season and my shoes were very generously donated to by my granddad.
Now, all the people in this list are rather well known names in the fashion industry and the public eye, so I have no idea how I managed (as a student) to be rubbing shoulders with some very big names.
The write up was really nice and quirky and out of all of them, I found mine to have a fair bit of humour behind it.

This shot was taken at the Falmouth Fashion Show 2013.
I was blogging the show from the front row, sitting with the Head of Fashion.
It was an incredible show this year with some brilliant runway collections from 3rd year Fashion and Performance Sportswear Design students.
I didn’t know what I was going to wear (which is a number one dilemma) but seeing as I had got this bespoke suit made, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to wear it!
Creating a juxtaposition of clean, British bespoke tailoring with Boho style headgear I decided to piece the with suit with my vintage Gianni Versace Vogue Print tie and my new Vivienne Westwood ‘CHAOS’ headband and my circular sunglasses from festivalspecs.com

I was sent a link to this photo by my friend Flora who was one of the cast members I met when I was on Summer Daze with Blackberry last year.
It was one of her friends who had taken this photograph (and i’m glad he did).
